A bakery-cum-bar-restaurant - in Borough Market - has been inspired by the buvettes of Paris and the pintxos bars of San Sebastian. Split across two floors, Flor is housed in a 19th century building in the centre of Borough Market in the site that was one home to Patisserie Lila. In-house baked pastries are available in the morning, with sandwiches served lunchtimes and flatbreads available for dinner - following their 'produce and provenance-led cooking'.
All the baked goods are made in-house, using British wheat milled at Lyle’s. Wash down with wines that have been sourced from agriculturally-responsible producers, many of which are available by the glass.
